Forest Moor School prioritises the well-being and emotional resilience of our students through Trauma-Informed Practice. Inspired by the principles advocated by Trauma Informed Schools UK and the expertise of renowned psychologist Margot Sunderland, our school is dedicated to creating a nurturing environment where every child feels safe, valued, and supported. 

At Forest Moor we understand that students may carry invisible burdens that affect their learning and well-being. Our commitment to Trauma-Informed Practice means we recognize the impact of trauma on young minds and have implemented strategies to respond empathetically. We prioritise emotional literacy, fostering a culture of compassion and understanding among students, staff, and parents. 

Through the principles of relating and connecting, we empower our students to build trust with our dedicated staff, forming strong, supportive relationships that promote their emotional well-being. 

With an emphasis on regulation, we equip our students with essential tools to manage stress, anxiety, and overwhelming emotions. By teaching self-regulation strategies, we empower them to thrive both academically and emotionally. 

Our school community is equipped to address the unique needs of each student, helping them thrive academically and emotionally. Together, we create an environment that promotes healing, resilience, and growth, ensuring that every student can reach their full potential. Join us in embracing Trauma-Informed Practice as we cultivate a brighter future for all our students.
